Large-scale fire tests conducted in a number of countries and observations of actual building fires have shown that the fire performance of composite steel framed buildings is much better than is indicated by fire resistance tests on isolated elements. It is clear that there are large reserves of fire resistance in modern steel-framed buildings and that standard fire resistance tests on single unrestrained members do not provide a satisfactory indicator of the performance of such structures.
This software designs composite floor slabs at elevated temperatures by taking into account the enhancing effects of the membrane action in slab. MACS+ also checks perimeter beams and provides a critical temperature for each of them.
* MACS+ download link provides freeware version of the software.
The purpose of AMECO software is to assess the life cycle of composite structures of buildings or bridges, evaluating the environmental footprint, in particular the associated energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
Compos is a unique composite beam design software program to analyse and design studded composite and non-composite steel beams.
CBeam 2. 0 is a windows application that calculates section properties for composite beams.
The COMPOSITE-BEAM program performs design of composite beams according to ENV 1994‑1‑1:1992‑10.
LUCA calculates displacements and additional horizontal forces that appear in industrial halls during fire enabling the engineers to consider their effect in the design in order to avoid collapse or risk of human life.
